I truly love this outfit! I just purchased both the sweater and jeans and had the jeans on when I tried the sweater. I knew as soon as I saw myself in the mirror I was going to wear them together for a chic boho look. Add a floppy hat and large fun tote and I’m done. Husband loved the outfit as well which is always a plus!


It feels really good to wear loose, wide-leg jeans and not skinnies. I won’t be getting rid of them but it’s nice to have options that are on-trend. I definitely needed a pair of wide-leg jeans that were floor length and not easily cuffed like my J Crew pairs. This is an outfit I would absolutely wear for Black Friday shopping. It’s comfortable and the tote will hold snacks and water.

This is somethI’ll be adding this outfit to my favorites rotation. Once I feel fantastic and comfortable in an outfit I want to wear it all the time!

It’s time for a Nap!

I love my Kerrington Tote in Sunhats that I purchased this Spring I wanted one for Fall.

Of the three options for Fall, I ended up choosing the Floral print tote and love it. I love that this one has a zipper pocket attached to the inside of the tote and not a removable pouch like the Sunhat Tote.

We visited The Boy this past weekend and it was perfect for travelling. I was able to keep all of my essentials with me, including a cardigan for the chilly evenings. I have a few more travels before year’s end so it will come in quite handy. If this had a few more pouches it would be great as a chic baby bag. 
Have a Great Day!

I haven’t done a true Que Bella in over a month so here are a few things I’ve been wearing. I’ll be back to my Capsule Remix next week, when everyone leaves and my house is empty. You can always catch glimpses on my Instagram.

The Brandyce Tunic from Tory Burch is such a special piece. There are matching pants but I though that was a little too much. But Kiernan Shipka looks great in both. I found these pants at White House/Black Market. They are very flattering and I’m wearing a size 6 Short in them.

The Neon Papaya of the Fluted Skirt is VERY VERY NEON. But I noticed it matches the top part of the sun in this tee perfectly. I got it on final sale so no returning this one. Oh well, what’s a Summer tan if you can’t show it off with some neon.

Finally, this was for the first day of Orientation for The Boy. I love my Seville’s. I walked all over campus in them all day long, around 13 hours and was comfortable in them the whole time. I felt very put together but not overdressed in any way.

Just a little outfit post from my Vegas Vacation. Each time I go the experience is a little different whether it’s different restaurants, always a different hotel, different shows, etc. This time we stayed in two hotels, the Flamingo and then moved to the Mandarin Oriental. The latter is a beautiful, albeit pricey, hotel. If I could afford it I would stay there each time. There’s something to be said about not having a casino in the same hotel you are staying. The pool was gorgeous and everyone has a padded lounge chair. No stalking or reserving any like the other hotels. There was nothing wrong with our room at the Flamingo. We stayed in the remodeled “Go Rooms” and it’s perfect for a quick stay.

This was Travel Day 1. The Silk Crepe Maxidress was perfect. I am always chilly on planes and the Metallic V-Neck Sweater was just enough to keep me warm. One drawback to the sweater though. It almost caused me to get a pat-down by TSA due to the metallic threading in the sweater. I was about to go on my way and the TSA Agent said, “Hold on. I may have to check your sweater.” I was like “Say what?” Luckily I passed on through. I used my Amalie Sandals more than I thought I would. They were very comfortable all day. I usually like to take a small purse, like a cross-body for trips but I loved carrying the Kerrington Tote around. The interior zipped pouch kept my phone and wallet secure.

I had my cross-body bag, jewelry boxes and my Keating Boy Blazer in Chambray all tucked in my Tote bag.

I am in love with the Chrome Green color of the Factory Scalloped Shift Dress. I wore this the first night out with the Grande Crystal Drops Necklace and Martina Metallic Wedges. Husband and I went to the Mandarin Bar to celebrate our anniversary.

Day 2 had Husband finishing up a poker tournament and me on my own for a little while. My London Blouse with white Pleated Shorts and Amalie Sandals were perfect for the morning and afternoon. I chose these shorts instead of the Bermudas since they were a little dressier.

I kept the London Blouse on and changed into the Fluted Skirt in Double-Crepe. My Cleo Metallic Loafers and Kate Spade Clutch helped polish me up for the evening.

And this was the show Husband picked for that night. If you are ever in Vegas, a fan of Prince or not, you MUST MUST go see this show! It was simply amazing, complete with Morris Day, Jerome & the Time, and all the requisite banter. I would definitely go see this show again and again.

We moved hotels on Day 3 and I wore my new purchase from the Tory Burch store, the Mia Slim Boot Jean with the matching-in-color Lidia Polo and my Cece Ballet Flats. I loved this outfit. Husband thought the jeans were a little wacky but he lived with it.

We spent most of the afternoon at the pool and when we came back to our room a little treat was waiting for us.

On the flight home, I wore the Silk Crepe Maxidress in Brilliant Blueberry and topped it with the Jackie Cardigan in Black.

One thing that was really annoying this time were all the “get a free show but sit in this time-share/not time-share meeting for a few hours”. This is the first time I’ve experienced this in Vegas. It was truly annoying as the people dressed similar to the hotel employees so asking a question may have gotten you a spiel. Some were also really really agressive. This did not happen at the Mandarin. I hated to be rude but it was really bad to be on the lookout for them and take a long walk around them.
Other than that, we had a great time and a wonderful anniversary.
Have a Great Day!

I was holding this post until next week but the 25% Off Friends & Fans Event has started today (through Monday, April 28).

I took some time to head to the Forum Shops at Caesar’s while Husband was playing in a poker tournament. I was able to stop in to Tory Burch and try on a couple of more items from the Summer 2014 Collection. The Talia Shirtdress is part of the Collection as are the Sadie Slingbacks.

I have been lusting over the Mia Slim Boot Denim and finally decided to try them on. They are the same print as the Talia Shirtdress, which I am such a fan of. I took a size 29, my normal jean size. It does stretch some so stay with your normal denim size. It is cropped, for me just at the ankle, and has a slight boot flare.


There are so many color options to choose from in this print. I’m now looking for a lavender-colored top, preferably in linen, to pair with these jeans.

I love the Lidia Polo Shirts. The ruffle at the collar and placket make it much more feminine. This is the Linen version and fits just fine in my normal size Medium. 

The Zora Tee was another top I was excited to try on. It fits well through the body and shoulders in a Medium but the arms are a little snug. This is also Linen and has a contrasting all navy back.

The Amanda Tee is on sale and is similar to J Crew’s Cut-out Floral Sweatshirt. I do prefer this tee over the sweatshirt. Again, size Medium fits well.

The SA I worked with suggested I try the Linda Top with the Mia Slim Boot. The online model has her arms to the side so you don’t see the swing at the bottom. The lace overlay in the green is pretty but it’s the back that really makes this top.

But sadly, even with the beautiful back I couldn’t buy this top. The arms were too tight in the size 8 and once the back was hooked and buttoned it rode a little high on my neck. 

The Jessa Top is a beautiful silk blouse with a Queen Anne’s lace print (also one of the flower’s growing at Tory’s home). I have on a size 8 and that fits perfectly. There’s a matching (and pricey) maxi skirt and pants  (Those are not included in the promo since they are on pre-order).

The Valerie Dress is a crepe jersey of the same Queen Anne’s lace print and has a beautiful low-cut back. It is very comfortable on but a little long for my taste, hitting below the knee in a size Medium. 
Lastly, is the Kaylin Dress in Mesh Stripe. This is a beautiful shift dress with a built-in jeweled neckline and also comes in white. I have on a size 8 here but also tried the 6 which fit much better.  

So pretty…if only I had a few places and events to wear this dress.

My Kerrington Tote in the Sunhats print was perfect for travelling and even for walking around shopping my first day in Vegas.
I took my Lidia Polo in Leaf Green as well and wore it one day with the Mia Slim Boot.
